Ben's show, "I WILL NOT BE ENTRANCED BY NOSTALGIA" will kick off in Yorkville with an artist reception on April 9th to welcome the Ontario native.
His work isn't literal but rather full of tongue and cheek, thought provoking, clever text and images, leaving the ultimate message in the hands of the audience. Ben's work makes us take pause and his skillful use of varied materials (leather, gold leaf, steel, silk, acrylic, plaster, plexiglass, neon, etc.) quickly earned our respect and admiration - he also served as the original inspiration behind the popular (and fantastic) blog, The Jealous Curator.
Ben's homecoming comes after exhibitions in Paris, New York, Frankfurt, Vancouver, Washington DC and San Francisco to name a few.
The exhibition will continue until April 30, 2016 - see you there?
